Quick About Us
Like most successful companies the founder has roots in his industry and Jason Lutke is no exception. Lutke was formed in 1992 with a Gafner 4500 Iron Mule, straight truck, tri-axle trailer and a solid work ethic. While employed at Pine Tech Lumber Company and Harvesting part time with SD Warren until 1996, founder Jason Lutke took the plunge and expanded, adding two forwarders and two Hydro-Ax feller bunchers to improve production
and keep up with increased demand coming from solid recommendations by
land owners, mill operators and timber companies who took notice of
Jason’s policy of going the extra mile to do the job right and treat
the land as if it was his own.
Officially incorporating Lutke Forest Products in 2000, adding Lutke Hydraulics in 2007 to provided the areas logging professionals with Hydraulic hoses, repair, chainsaws, saw chain, files, small engine repair and machine shop to repair pins & bushings as well as provide fabricating services.
